Pillow talk: Magniberg and Our Legacy launch upcycled bedding
Fold yourself into Swedish design brand Magniberg’s upcycled approach to bedding
Swedish design brand Magniberg approaches its bedding collections as it does the components of a wardrobe. The four-year old label combines distinct fabrics like washed jersey, silk and sateen, layering up fabrics of various weights and finishes as you would the different material elements of an outfit. It’s a sartorial synergy then, that Magniberg – co-founded by fashion designer Bengt Thornefors, whose CV includes stints at Acne Studios, Saint Laurent and Kostas Murkudis – has found a brilliant bedfellow in Swedish fashion brand Our Legacy, creating a range of sleep inducing items made using upcycled shirt fabrics.
‘My friends at Our Legacy always push the envelope, and it totally made sense to collaborate with them on a project about bringing new life into exclusive leftover fabrics,’ says Thornefors of the offering, which includes snuggly duvets in a black overdyed seersucker cotton and unisex pyjamas in candy floss coloured floral lace. Our Legacy is a leader when it comes to upcycling-focused projects. Its ‘Workshop’ retail platform champions the reuse of deadstock fabrics and garments, and projects include a series of customised Artek stools sold at Dover Street Market Ginza.
‘If one is to produce something and put it out into a world where far too many things already exist, it needs to be desirable,’ says Jockum Hallin, founder Our Legacy, of the cosy yet fashion-forward collaborative pieces. ‘We have merged our world with Magnibergs’. The outcome is fun, progressive and beautiful. It´s a world I want to bring home’. With these eco-aware, alluring items, you’ll be feeling house proud in no time too. You might also want to bring forward bedtime. §
